Croatian cities continue to grow in popularity on the international tourism market

first_imgLondon is expected to lose third place in the rankings for 2019, ahead of Macau and Singapore. On the other hand, Paris will take advantage of any difference of visitors from the United Kingdom. Although intraregional travel is stable, arrivals from Asian markets, such as China and Japan, have outpaced the increase in visitors from the region. Intraregional travel remains the largest source of tourism, with almost 80 percent of travelers traveling within the region. This is the result of a strong regulatory framework and travel policies that make travel easier within the European Union and the Schengen area, which includes 26 European countries. Road and transport infrastructure in Europe is one of the strongest in the world. There are 853 airports in the region. The high-quality and wide rail and road network in Europe further facilitates intra-regional tourism. Europe is the second fastest growing regional destination after Asia and has recorded the largest number of arrivals in the world, according to the results of the report “Top 100 urban destinations 2018” by Euromonitor. Travelers are looking for newer, more localized experiences and less crowds, which makes these destinations desirable. The popularity and increased number of low-cost carriers to these destinations have also favored growth. London retained third place in the ranking of “Top 100 city destinations”, despite the decline in the number of arrivals due to Brexit. However, the future of the travel market in the UK remains uncertain, especially if visa restrictions are tightened as it will lose a lot of visitors from the European Union. center_img While traditional locations such as Milan, Berlin and Vienna have fallen in the rankings due to lower visitor interest, destinations such as Croatia, Slovenia and Sweden are climbing upwards.

Key cities in Turkey are continuously climbing the ladder to improve security and devalue the Turkish lira, making Turkey an attractive European destination “for everyone’s pocket”.
